Caption

Terra Nova view of Antarctica. View from the Terra Nova sailing ship of the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica, a large mass of ice that prevents further passage south. This photograph was obtained at 1.45pm on 3 January 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913) as the Terra Nova crew sighted Antarctica. The shore party landed the following day. Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, a shore party of 33 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole.
